How and Why Hair and Scalp issues have a wide reaching effect
Hair is seen as a defining feature for both Men and Women, often referred to as your “crowning glory”. It is therefore hardly surprising that when there is a problem with the hair that it has a wide reaching effect from mild concern to anxious, depressive disorders in those who suffer.
Almost all of the patients that Eva sees in her hair clinics have had a hair or scalp issue for at least 6 – 9 months before they find the courage to address it. Often this period of time is much longer, the average suffering time is between 2 – 5 years. Imagine spending years worrying that you are losing your hair, visiting your GP only to find no diagnosis, treatment or empathy, and spending a lonely time trying to put on a brave face.
With 1 in 2 people in the UK suffering a hair loss issue at some point, it is vital that access to trained professionals who can effectively help is made more visible and easy to find. The current official statistics (Mintel) state that over 5 million women and 7 million men are suffering with hair or scalp issues.
